My whole family lives in Lowell, MA, i decided early on in my life that I wouldn’t transport too far away from home! Everyone sticks close and goes to the same university.
Everyone knows each other and all the kids play on the same hockey team.
It just makes wonderful sense. I hunted around for the perfect household in Lowell and found a place. I grew up with a gas boiler. It used air duct to achieve whole apartment temperature control. I found a household that had a boiler system. I was originally quite anxious. I didn’t know anything about boilers. I did not like that I was kept in the basement and took up so much room. It had piping hooked to it and it was strewn through all my floors… That seemed bizarre to me, then at first I thought about ripping out the boiler and redoing the floors. Thankfully I had so several more projects on deck that I let that be at the bottom of the list, however now that I have done a full winter season season in Lowell with hydronic heating, I will never own another system, and having moderate water flow through pipes and be under the floors is amazing. The furnace is so efficient, you feel warmer when it sticks to the ground level. It is quiet, clean, and there are no moderate and chilly spots. Anything touching the heated flooring feels warmer as a result; For Lowell, having a wonderful working heater is a game changer, however my boiler system also is connected with residing over 50 years. I am in for a real treat.
